LOS ANGELES— Joya, a wellness brand creating plant-based and meticulously crafted functional foods and beverages, is thrilled to announce its official launch and online web shop. Founded by Ruth Elnekave, a former lawyer and classically trained chef turned holistic nutritionist who healed her severe adrenal fatigue with whole foods and potent botanicals, Ruth was impassioned to bring her nutrient-dense snack and beverages to consumers everywhere.
“I’ve experienced firsthand the powerful and unmatched benefits of incorporating herbs and plants into your diet to turn your health around,” says Joya founder Ruth Elnekave. “As a lawyer who was burning the candle at both ends for years, it was the functional foods that I developed in my kitchen that cured my persistent health issues for good. My belief that wellness should never mean sacrifice, coupled with my holistic nutrition and herbal medicine training resulted in Joya—an equal parts delicious and nourishing superfoods line—and I’m ecstatic to share our joy-inducing line-up with a broader community of people seeking tasty functional options.”
